San Marino's pride and joy is The Huntington, one of Los Angeles County's most famous cultural landmarks. In 1919, railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington and philanthropist Arabella Huntington established this major institution. The Huntington consists of a library, expansive art collection, and 120 acres of landscaped gardens. In the art galleries, enjoy a thoughtfully curated selection of 15th to 20th-century European art and 17th to 20th-century American art. Highlights include works by world-famous artists such as Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, and Andy Warhol. On the Huntington premises, you'd also be remiss not to explore the expanse of 16 gorgeous landscaped gardens. Must-visit spots include the lush Japanese, Chinese, and Desert Gardens. Keep your eyes out for beautiful orchids, camellias, cycads, and bonsai all throughout the Huntington gardens.
